Ritchie be requested to stake out the sites of the 
different buildings of the group.

committee their judgment as to what arrangements he could make 
that would be satisfactory both to the committee and to his fa: - 
ily. It seemed to be the wish of the committee that if arrange- 
ments could be made agreeable to him, it would probably be pre- 
ferable for the President to occupy the president's house. No

ments in this matter was informally adopted.

After the above meeting the Treasurer and Architect 
called on assistant Attorney-General Barn urn and asked him 
whether it was necessary, under Chapter 56, to advertise 
for bids for the greenhouse work. After some discussion 
he said that as far as his office was concerned it did not 
make any difference, hut referred us to the Auditor's 
office. We saw Mr. Hawley and he told us to construct the 
greenhouses as we thought best as there would be no objec- 
tions from his office.
